Coup?I don't think so, they kind of have a strong cult of personality within that country. Kim Jung Un as a puppet however........fleetmouse wrote:I read that some insider in North Korea said Kim is posturing to the world because he's too young and inexperienced to take command of the military... it's all bluster. Which is an interesting dynamic - if the military isn't fully under his control then there could eventually be a coup. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing. I'm sure much of the military brass is as corrupt and selfish as him and his father.

And whose to say he isn't now. Though I here good news from the US navy that they have set up missile defense systems in the area, they should be able to intercept anything they fire holding a nuclear payload (if they even have that capacity).
